Can we strengthen our defensive positions?

Discover your options and put yourself in a continual state of preparedness

Options Depend on Whether you are Being Proactive... or Served

Your options for strengthening your defensive position depend in part on whether you are being proactive or served. The components of a proactive defensive strategy can include:

  • Understanding the competitive landscape and identifying which companies have patents that read on your products or are patenting in a market you are considering
  • Preparing an analysis of how your portfolio reads on a suspected threat and starting to demonstrate the value of your technology

If you are in a defensive position, we can also look for ways to weaken the position of the aggressor – either through non-infringement arguments or evidence of patent invalidity through prior art/prior use.

Often the Best Defense Includes a Good Offense

Turning the tables and going on the offensive is often the most effective strategy. The key success factor here is evidence that clearly demonstrates the value of your patented technology and the strength of your position. That’s where Chipworks can help.

We will demonstrate the value of your technology by gaining an understanding of your patents that will read on the largest portion of revenue of your aggressor’s products, making recommendations for analysis and then documenting evidence of use in accurate, exhaustively researched claim charts.

The bottom line is this: every situation is different and it demands a customized solution. Let’s talk about your situation and how we can help.

The Chipworks Solution

Our ability to hammer out an effective strategy to defend against an assertion is based on the following services and expertise:

  • Patent evaluation – an interactive approach to prioritize your patents using tools that apply our product and industry knowledge, and identify your most valuable patents in the context of a specific IP strategy
  • Patent mapping – matching a patent or groups of patents to current high revenue areas
  • Exposure Analysis – understanding who is patenting where and which patents read on your products
  • Prior art/use – leveraging Chipworks’ vast inventory of historical devices to find prior use and invalidate an assertion
  • Non-infringement analysis – identify and document evidence of use through technical analysis of products, standards, or literature
"Our defense options were limited and we had a lot at stake. The non-infringement evidence produced by Chipworks helped us avoid millions in litigation costs and damages."
